Mike Kerr had the lyrics for several years before recording it for the Royal Blood
album. He used to play the tune on an acoustic guitar with one of his old bands. Kerr told Drowned in Sound
: "That was actually one of the ideas I took to Ben (Thatcher, drums) the first time we met up to play, and it very quickly turned into what it sounds like now. So it was probably the most written song we had before it became a Royal Blood thing."
